Myself and my two friends stayed in this hotel last weekend. We had a lovely stay with the highlight of our visit being the roof top bar with panoramic views on the lake. The cocktail list was extensive with plenty to choose from and I would highly recommend the "Strawberry Daiquiri". The rooms were very spacious with comfortable beds and... More

As we had a job on a near bye power station we decided to stay in Loughrea instead of Galway, which made a our day and daily commute a lot shorter. The hotel has a large car park and a impressive frontage. The hotel receptionist was very friendly and was extremely apologetic about one of our rooms was not quite... More

We stayed here on a Lidl break for 3 nights. The hotel website was very impressive so we were looking froward to our stay but have to say was a little disappointed. Rooms were nice and spacious and clean. Bar had been recently renovated so that was nice. Breakfast room could do with the same. A bit dated and every... More

The bedrooms were lovely clean and modern and the red colour gave it a lovely cosy feel. There was a large comfortable bed. The hotel did have a spa but it was at an extra cost of which... More

We stayed here when attending a wedding. Staff were excellent, food was excellent and for me the highlight was the ambience and the view from the roof top garden best enjoyed with their selection of craft beers and local produce. Rooms were comfortable and luxurious and hot rock treatment in the Spa not to be missed.

This was the third hotel my partner and I stayed in on our tour of Ireland. The Hotel is different to what I was expecting from the website pictures in that it has a modern open plan feel and doesn't have much character like a lot of hotels in Ireland, but it is airy and pleasant. Check in was easy... More
